I stayed here for one night whilst walking the West Highland Way.
We were accommodated in a cottage close to the main inn. I loved my room which was spacious and had a good view, but it would have been a problem for anyone much taller than me (5'2") due to the sloping ceilings. My dad stayed in a room (in the same cottage) which was so tiny that there was nowhere to open his suitcase other than on his bed.
Earplugs are provided in the rooms in case of noisy neighbours, but thankfully this wasn't an issue.
The restaurant has quirky decor (tea cups hanging from the ceiling) and a good atmosphere.
My only criticism would be that when we arrived at 3:30pm we were told very bluntly that 'check-in is at 4pm'. We were advised to sit in the bar whilst we waited, so I guess that's good business sense! Other than that, the rest of the staff were friendly and helpful. Everywhere else we stayed during our WHW walk, the receptionists/ owners always checked to see if our room was ready, whatever time we arrived.
